Feedback on Neuropsychology Reports

The National Child Cancer Network (NCCN) is seeking to improve the way that information gathered during neuropsychology assessments is reported. We want to ensure that reports provide useful information that is easy to understand and can be used by young people, parents, teachers, doctors and others to support a child at home, school or at work.

Neuropsychological Assessment Reports are written by neuropsychologists after they have assessed a child/young person.  Assessment may include: conversations with family and school; completing questionaires; observations of the child; formal neuropsychological testing; and the review of  medical information.  The report brings together all of this information to try to answer a referral question and to offer recommendations to assist the child/young person at home, school or work.

Our working group has prepared a sample Neuropsychological Assessment Report (included below) to gather feedback from important users of reports like family members, teachers, doctors and other support providers. Please note that while the sample report includes personal information, the information is made up and does not relate to a real child or young person.

We would like feedback on the language that is used in the report and the information that is included. We will use your feedback to refine our sample report which our neuropsychologists will then use as a guide when they are writing these reports. 

We would be very greatful if you could have a look at our sample report which follows, as well as considering any Neuropsychological Assessment Reports that you may have read in the past, to answer the following questions.
